Although Kate Hudson appears gentle and sympathetic toward others (as explained in the previous chapter), she is also a "warrior". Hudson sometimes feels torn between these two facets of her character: the sensitive, tenderhearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. People who first meet Kate Hudson often think that she is a "softy", but later find out that she is strong willed and pursues her goals aggressively.
She is a person who thrives on challenge, and she often feels that she must battle her way through life, relying on no one and nothing but her own strength, intelligence and courage. Kate Hudson believes in being totally honest, true to herself and her own vision and convictions, even if it means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor and authenticity are Hudson's gods, and she has no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
Kate Hudson craves the freedom to do things in her own way, and she works very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not her style. Kate likes to be the chief - or to go it alone.
Kate Hudson loves action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then she is always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes and introduce some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are tantamount to death for her. She is not afraid of trying something that has never been done before, and even though she may sometimes be perceived as a fool, Kate Hudson also discovers, invents and initiates things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following her own star are the breath of life for Hudson, and she wilts (or gets very frustrated and angry) if she cannot do this.
She is spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic and assertive. Kate Hudson believes in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and she perceives herself as a strong, even invincible, person. Kate Hudson hates being ill or in a position of dependency. Accepting her own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for her.
She is basically aggressive in her attitudes and less adept at relating to others, picking up on subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing and harmonizing. She is often so fired up about her own projects or goals that she inadvertently runs over or ignores other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas and feelings would be highly instrumental in improving Hudson's relationships. Her impatience to get on with things causes Kate Hudson to be rather insensitive, thereby alienating others unnecessarily. She also frequently tries to accomplish her goals through anger or temper tantrums. Kate Hudson would gain much by learning to slow down, relax and sometimes just let things be, however her energetic, restless nature rarely allows Kate Hudson to do so.
Her career, reputation, and public image are very important to Hudson. Kate Hudson has a strong desire to be influential or make her mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy her; her ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for her unique effort and gifts. Kate Hudson may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Kate Hudson often feels that she is at cross purposes with herself, for her conscious intentions and desires conflict with her subconscious emotional needs and drives. She is torn in two different directions. Kate has difficulty satisfying both her need to be an individual and her need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Moreover, Kate sends out mixed messages so people do not always know how to respond to her or what Kate really wants, thereby creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Kate has big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. Kate Hudson tends to exaggerate, promise more than is feasible and misjudge by being overly optimistic. However, she never gives up on her hopes for the future. Hudson tends to be restless and discontent with the responsibilities and limitations of life.
Hudson might be called the eternal optimist and has a very peace-loving nature. She seems to be happy and content, generous and popular in social circles. Kate Hudson also has a good sense for business and likes to carry out enterprises on a large scale.
Hudson seems to lack self-confidence and has a sense of anxiety and insecurity that has no obvious cause. Kate Hudson tends to withdraw and her outlook in general could be a bit too negative. Kate Hudson should beware of letting her emotional tension react to her physical well-being.
